all the top stories coming up soon. as i mentioned, live to germany as well to talk about the latest covid restrictions. i will see you soon. hello. sunnier, colderweather by day means clearer, frostier conditions at night. and for many, it will be a frost as monday begins but a fine, dry, sunny day to come. now, feeling chilly, although temperatures are edging back closer to average for the time of year. we've lost that straight wind from the north and around this area of high pressure, some less chilly air feeding in and so, temperatures willjust recover closer to average for the time of year. and it is high pressure, and that means a lot of dry weather for the next couple of days so cloud is going to increase, as we will see in a moment. not much cloud around, though, first thing monday with the extent of the frost. just the north coast of northern ireland, far north of scotland and down the east coast of england avoiding that frost.
5:27 am
northern scotland with cloud and breeze seeing some patchy rain. some showers feeding in towards kent, sussex and the channel islands. and some cloud increasing in northern ireland during the day. but for most out of that clear, frosty start, it's another sunny day to come, but feeling chilly — even though these temperatures are not far from average. it's all relative compared, of course, with the really mild autumn that we've had so far. now, cloud will increase from the north as we go through monday night and into tuesday morning across scotland, northern ireland, into northern england and wales. the clearer skies in south wales, the midlands and toward southern england is where we are most likely to have a frost on tuesday morning. there could also be some mist and fog patches. but frost is less widespread as tuesday begins. but there is more cloud around. now, despite the cloud, most places will stay dry but still some patchy rain across parts of northern and western scotland. best of any lingering sunny spells will be in southern england, south wales, parts of the midlands as well. more tens showing up on the chart here, so temperatures have
5:28 am
edged up a little bit. won't last long, though, because through wednesday, there's another cold front moving southwards. for thursday, we are in the colder air coming down the north and then, at the end of the week, we're watching this area of low pressure which is likely turn things windier and wetter. so then, later this week, we are getting back into the colder air and as the wind picks up around that area of low pressure, wind chill will be more of a factor, along with an increasing chance of overnight frost as well. so a fairly quiet few days before the weather turns more active later in the week. colder, wetter, windier and an increasing chance of getting some wintry showers as well.
